Sweet'tauk lemonade recipes from "Let's make lemonade (and sell it too)" by Deborah Aiza, Montauk NY


This is honest, straightforward, irresistible lemonade. It’s simple to make and easy to make. To get started, you’ll need some simple syrup and a few basic ingredients.

Remember to use fresh lemons and clean, filtered water.


  • 2 Cups simple syrup
  • 1 Cup freshly-squeezed lemon juice (6-8 lemons)
  • 3-4 Cups filtered water

What to Do

  1.  Make your simple syrup following the instructions here.
  2.  While your syrup cools, juice your lemons. Depending on the size, 6-8 lemons should be enough for one cup of fresh lemon juice.
  3.  If you want less pulp, pour the lemon juice through a strainer to remove pulp and seeds.
  4.  Once syrup is cool pour into a serving pitcher along with the fresh lemon juice.
  5. Add three cups of water (or to taste), lots of ice, and serve.

Note: When adding water, keep in mind that the ice will dilute your lemonade as it melts. Sometimes it’s a good idea to make your lemonade a little stronger by adding less water.
